Alistair Carmichael MP is seeking to recruit a Communications Officer to join his team.
The successful applicant will be expected to assist Mr Carmichael in the full range of his parliamentary duties but will have a strong focus on communications involving correspondence with constituents and communication through print, broadcast and online media outlets.
Some experience in these areas is advantageous but more important is the right understanding of them and attitude towards their use. The ability to communicate clearly with a good standard of written English is essential.
Funding is available for a full time position but applications will be considered from those seeking part-time or job share employment.
The successful applicant could be based in either the House of Commons or in the constituency offices in Kirkwall and Lerwick.
Sympathy with the aims and policies of the Liberal Democrats is desirable.
Salary will be in line with the IPSA pay scale for a Communications Officer.
Applications with full CV and a covering letter of no more than one side should be sent by post to: Alistair Carmichael MP, House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA or by e-mail to Tom Panton: email@example.com
Closing date for applications - 5pm Monday 27th June 2016.
